If at $200 each set that makes each card is $40. That makes really only one fetchland that is over priced but saves you $80 per box (if you were wanting all of them).
Now it is expensive but it still is a good deal per the value.
Do I wish the cards didn't have this high value? Yes because I would like to own them but the flip side is with out them having value there is less desire to own some cards. We all have the desire and excitement when we get an expensive card and it is a natural feeling. It's the exact reason many players crack packs. With out this value you don't sell as many packs and it also harms the LGS in singles where they make a majority of there money.

totterygrain: You generrally want to prioritise U/G mana to increase your chances to it early game. So you want more lands that can produce both of those. And with a reduced requirement for white mana you don't need Arid Mesa, as its two targets are generally going to be Savannah/Tundra to get your U/G. So in its place you're just better off with another source like Yavimaya Coast.

Glad you found the deck helpful!
The reason I run Arid Mesa and Bloodstained Mire is because Arid Mesa can fetch for either the Plains, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, Savannah, Scrubland, Temple Garden, or Tundra while Bloodstained Mire can fetch for either the Swamp, Bayou, Godless Shrine, Overgrown Tomb, Scrubland, Underground Sea, or Watery Grave. So I guess it's fair to say that even though the deck doesn't run any mountains, Arid Mesa and Bloodstained Mire are pretty useful ;)

thewolfiest, it will depend on what exactly you want out of your manabase. I typically prioritize untapped lands or specific utility functions. Removing duals takes away tutor targets for fetches, so you'll need to include basics.
Talking strictly meeting color requirements, for allied lands you can look at the multiplayer-specific lands that come into play tapped unless you have 2 or more opponents.
For the Enemy lands, you are more restricted. I'd look at the list below, leaning toward whatever priorities you held for the manabase. Easy route would be yanking the last 3 for 1 swamp, 1 forest, and 1 Prismatic Vista
Honestly, I would do this, replacing all Duals with:

To answer your question regarding lands:
To start, here's a great resource for lands: All the lands in a sorted list. It lists all the lands, has the prices on them, and has them sorted by what colours they produce/what colors they can fetch.
Your standard Fetch lands are going to be: Flooded Strand , Polluted Delta , Bloodstained Mire , Wooded Foothills , Windswept Heath , Marsh Flats , Scalding Tarn , Verdant Catacombs , Arid Mesa , and Misty Rainforest .
There are other, inferior fetch lands that enter tapped or only fetch basics, which you could use if you are on a very tight budget.

Hello everyone! I have some pretty excited cards to sell. I’m sad to part with them, but the truth is I haven’t played with them in ages, replacing a sewer line in the winter sucks, and replacing said sewer line in the winter while your family is buying holiday gifts left and right extra sucks! Anyway… my plumbing misfortune is your good fortune! All cards are selling below the lowest TCG price for comparable condition, and if you find it priced lower, I’ll happily adjust my pricing! Cards are near mint, except for the dual lands (which are played). Happy to supply pics of any cards you’re interested in, just message me! Shipping is covered in the cost - PWE for sales $30 and under, and I’ll track anything over $30 for free (if you want tracking under $30, we’ll sort that out), and I can take payment via PayPal. I’m planning to list these online Tuesday, so please let me know if you’re interested!
